Two weeks ago I posted about putting our Chelsea to sleep - here I had planned to wait till summer when I retire to get another dog. In fact, I put a deposit on a Shith Tzu which would be ready 6/10. However, there was an article in our paper about 2 people from Alabama who wanted to rescue 20 dogs that the shelter down there could not keep alive. They put the 20 dogs in a van and drove them to Nashua. I thought I would take a look. I did not get one of those dogs, but I found Toby. He is 1 year 4 months old, a mix between a bichon and a beagle (seems strange.) One look in his big eyes and I wanted him. So did my wife. So, we brought him home. He is sure different than Chelsea and from the little dog (15 pounds) we planned on getting - he is 34 pounds.
